So I spent about a year or so in Toronto, and then I was dropped by MCA. I was a workaholic then, I'm a recovering workaholic now. I mean I just think that the song was just so obvious. Worden: The [Maverick] record rep had called us saying, “We have something really special, we want to come play it for you and it's a new artist and she's out of Canada,” and whatever, and so they came in and played us “You Oughta Know.” And I remember sitting in the room and me and my boss, Kevin, and my coworker Jean, all of us kind of looked at each other on one listen and just went holy crap, that thing is huge. I mean, I think certainly some of the radio people were probably hesitant at the beginning because it was moving to a completely different genre. It was actually fascinating to watch because it wasn't just that people were reacting so positively it's just that the record really seemed to connect with everybody. Ballard: Of course I know that it moved a lot of people, and I'm still astonished by how many people were touched by that record. I was just writing day and night — I have calendars from that period of time where I have a writing session in the morning and a writing session at night, seven days a week, Saturdays and Sundays, and that's all I did. I continued writing with a handful of different people and it just didn’t click until I met Glen. So everyone had an agenda often when I would go into the studio with them, whereas Glen had no agenda. The fact that she was trying to push some buttons with the lyrics, that was the thing that stood out the most the first time: “Would he go down on you in a theatre? I remember in one of those rare instances, we put the record on that moment. We played Alanis then and we decided to play Alanis now, just based entirely on that, I mean, there was a lot of hype about who she worked with and the themes of the songs.
